HP Bows New Printers, Print Server

Palo Alto, Calif. — Hewlett-Packard unveiled three new printers and a print server today.

The HP Photosmart CDD80 all-in-one printer allows scanning, copying and printing. It features built-in memory card slots and a 1.5-inch color display for editing photos without a computer. The device also comes equipped with a sensor designed to detect the type of paper being used and then automatically select optimal print or copy settings. It is also said to be possible to print 6-ink color photos and graphics by using an optional HP photo ink cartridge. The C4480 is available now for $99.

Also new to the company’s printer lineup is the HP Officejet J4680 all-in-one, which features built-in Wi-Fi for wireless printing, copying, faxing and scanning tasks. The device will be available at retail in August for $129.

The company is also adding to its Deskjet line of printers, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, with the Deskjet D4360. It features an 80-sheet fold-up paper tray and a print-cancel button. It is available now for $69.

According to HP, all three new printers feature its Smart Web Printing feature for printing from Web sites. The feature automatically adjusts Web pages to prevent cut-off edges and is said to let users select and print only the content they want.

Finally, HP also introduced its HP2101nw Wireless G USB print server, which is engineered to allow networked users to wirelessly share a printer. It features a secure 802.11g wireless connection, virtual USB and USB ports and is said to be compatible with most HP ink and laser printers, and any wireless desktop or notebook PC or Mac.
